Hi Herzer_sc, and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals especially the ground cable at BOTH ends, ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. Water or dirt in fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose or dirty ignition module connector at crankcase.

SOURCE: Harley Davidson street glide idles low and sometimes dies at stop signs?

You need to adjust the idle speed or if the bike had been running OK and nothing has been adjusted, the idle jet (carb)needs cleaning out or the MAS/throttle body(injection) needs attention. Other reasons include points (if fitted) and plug gaps, or air filter/scoop clogged.

SOURCE: what type of motor oil used in 1994 harley davidson 883

harley recomends that you use their oil but i would be carefull because it is a cynthetic now if you were using regular oil what that will do is clean all the old build up out of the motor this can be bad because after time there are pin hole leaks that occure but the build up stops it from leaking but if you use cynthetic you cant go back to regular oil it will gum up on you and ruen your motor so you got to find out what has been put in it. but use a 10-30

SOURCE: removing harley davidson ultra classic gas tank

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.

0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.

All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

I have a engine code p0505 on a 2006 harley flhx, what is that mean?


P0505: Loss of idle speed control.

Does it idle fast or rough? Fluctuates up and down?

Best guess: Intake manifold leak or your IAC (idle air control) needs cleaned, your idle speed needs adjusted.

Everything I can think of:
Bad/carboned up IAC, vacuum leak, leaking injector(s), contaminated fuel, TPS off ( throttle cable/TPS needs adjusted), battery voltage less than 9 volts, overfilled crankcase. VSS (Vehicle speed sensor) defective, it will disable idle speed control. Loss of battery power to to pin number 31? (sorry no manual handy for pin number) on the ECM.
